No worry to install it, I even got an update direct and free to the 1.5 (which saw the arrival of Neptune and management including a piece in "Blocks")
No conflict with my Line6 UX2, on the contrary, all my model packs are automatically added to the effects available in POD Record.
Assistance directly accessed through the software is in English but unfortunately the French textbook is available and the many video tutorials fairly simple to understand.
I have a small rise in config Pentium E2200 (dual core 2.2 GHz) and 4GB of Ram. No major concerns although I find that the gauge rises faster CPU than Cubase for instance.
It seems very stable against, no crash this time and all goes well in handling.
I won! I often "ogled" this software since its release (and even before, I could be "beta tester" for a few weeks before its release).
I did not have the means to acquire it, already having a poor Cubase Essential 4.
And then I was able to seize on sale for € 75 (woohoo!) and I did not hesitate.
And since then I have completely left Cubase ...
Warning, this is not a software "easy" at first, especially for users of traditional DAW. But very (VERY) fast we capture the logic and it is ultimately very easy to use and you get to work quickly with! Regulars of Reason, themselves, will not be too disoriented.
Of course, there are many things that will not include the inability to use the VST. But ergonomics is so great, the possibility to route all elements of the racks, to combine multiple effects as you want through the Combinator and especially and above all: the console!
This is the real stroke of the heart of this software for me. I do not know the other emulations of SSL slices but the fact is that I enjoy fiddling with that of Record. And gradually we realize that for this part there at least every other VST are relatively unnecessary.
Everything is here, the input gain (perfect for recording up a bit weak) to pan through the comp (very nice), the gate eq (hummm!) Inserts and departures ... short as in real. AND as a bonus: the master bus compressor that many know and covet.
Again I do not know other emulators (SSL Waves, Duende and other Native Instrument) but it is a feast for the eyes and especially ears!
Here there is no preset, no, nowhere, which can destabilize shocked to see that just Cubase, filled with sounds pre chewed. But it is also that force: up to listening and ear, more than manipulating gadgets and other visuals.
I still keep Cubase, particularly for use as a VST host (including my beloved EZDrummer) and placed in Record Rewire. But I begin to import all my songs and remixing in Record.
A must! In addition I now have the ability to upgrade to Reason 6 which now includes Record for 149 €. Geez, I have a couple of pennies for that.
I was lucky (privilge) to test the new software from Propellerhead for a week. I could see some DMOS, a product registration Submitted multitrack software with effects, totally Intgr Reason (or vice versa), and I can say I t tr s enjoyable surprise! <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_biggrin.gif" alt="biggrin" />
Installation is no problem it?
As Reason, no problem encountered. One small snag when it installs on a machine not studio, you need an ASIO driver, but it is and is configured without problem.
Have you experienced any incompatibility?
No incompatibility meeting. I install a version of Windows 7 (I took a risk), and it runs beautifully.
Gnrale configuration is easy?
As with Reason, the setup is a breeze, the surfaces are well known and everything is "easy" and intuitive.
The manual is clear and sufficient?
For what I saw, again, like Reason, pdf manual is perfect, clear and qqs minutes on discovering new features.
What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
CM ASUS / AMD 64 Dual Core / 4GB / 500GB SATA HD, Sound Card intgre.
This software + hardware configuration is stable?
Everything is stable, no bugs encountered so far.
The software works he correctly on this configuration?
More than well. We can load the rack, effects and audio tracks to 10 without problem (I have not had the courage or inspiration to put for now).
The Systm added component, however, slightly differ in Reason. Instead of finding the plugger lments on a table (it even component), the addition is done directly on a console. We will have a little trouble dpart to play with the effects or recover its cabling, but once the habit is absolutely gnial.
The principle of multi-is no surprise (apart from the fact that it works really well trs trs ), But then the change in tempo of the recording is stunning. We all losses in memory of the old audio or soft, when you change the tempo, the recorded sound is distorted from the microphone - or so I rat many soft drinks, which can also , Here it is not.
We end up playing rhythm guitar for example a 90 rear with a solo plan, some riffs. In one click, you find yourself in s'couter surdopp Satriani or Steve Vai ferrari version, and without any altration (in any case, I have not noticed yet).
In conclusion, I found for myself that it is a complete ultra soft, and totally rejects the limits of the composition. A test of urgency.
Installation on Mac is still easier. Product registration is not well explained very clearly but it is very easy to do and after 30 minutes of installation, on my deck with the DVD and my WiFi, I was already composing .
However, a small bug was reported on a Mac version you must install a patch (see CodeMeter Update) but nothing serious.
Hardware side, with my RME Multiface + HDSPe ExpressCard on Macbook Pro 15 "Mac OS 10.5.x nickel everything works except for one problem insert volume but is not due to record in my opinion.
Macbook Pro 15 "
4GB RAM Mac OS X 1.5.x (Leopard)
RME Multiface HDSPe ExpressCard (My Macbook is lucky to still have this port! Phew otherwise bye bye my Multiface ...)
Nothing to say, the products are super stable Proppelerheads ... Never crash and that even when I disconnect my sound card by accident. That said it's a bit normal with this kind of product all-in-one (No plug-ins not risk of instability)
Performance-wise, I am very surprised with the result. However, this varies widely used equipment. But in my case, the CPU purring with 10 tracks (4 audio Mono + 6 Reason). I personally have not gone further but the demo songs that show it's solid. My RME is still as powerful and well configured with Reason, latency can barely 3ms. Which is very honorable for the components in the home studio.
I love it! I scream with joy even! <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_biggrin.gif" alt="biggrin" />
Reason I know from the 1.0 beta and I could see the evolution of the product. I dreamed then 8 years of this record! And here at last!
I confess never to have loved using Rewire with Cubase or ProTools. I have a product all-in-one is perfect or stability, performance and quality nickel that I met my level of amateur home studio. There are so many opportunities to record that this product is the very heart of my Homestudio. The addition of ID8 very convenient and time stretch is super impressive.
It's been two weeks that I played with and I've never been so creative! And a hop hop bass line and some guitar and hop add a battery ... The grip is so easy that I did not open the manual. (However I could use a little lesson in engineering because I still have a hard time with Compressors <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="" /> ).
This purchase is for me to invest a musico amateur happy. I finally have everything I need in a box less than 500 €.
Installation is no problem.
The config is easy.
No problem at this point compatibility.
Uh .. the manual? wait ... I remember well .... But the little videos on their sites offer an easy ride.
ASUS P5K-E, Core 2 Quad 2.66gh, 4GB (well 3.kekchose on xp 32), vista 64 8gb, tascamfw 1884
the config is stable in xp 32. I tried both vista 64 and I had a crash, I did not look further. I'm not sure that it does not work.
It's actually heavier than Reason itself. But what else ....
The line plugs 6 are heavier, of course.
EDIT: Almost a few months of use I am impressed with the usability of this app. This is a treat, a real success. I put a. That's it.
A few months now.
I usually work on Cubase. But I always liked the ease of Reason.
I set up a small studio and was looking for a mobile software suitable for portable mobility and less powerful than my console fixed.
Record is not as clean and well led as cubase + + uad vst instruments, we must compare like with like. But it works well and quickly, by integrating the functionality of Reason without going through the rewire (which I have always discouraged). Without Reason I'm not sure it is very useful, but maybe. In any case the two together is a Swiss Army knife, meaning you can do everything, and it's easy (I speak of what is attributed to the left brain ...) and c ' is easy because we have everything at hand, even a rudimentary fashion. Propellerhead softwares, as well as banks emulations / simulations are easily musical. It is not the best, they are often the most effective ...
Personally, I prefer to test an idea <em>quickly</em> or to explore a style of music, or go fast or play, have fun (yes that I still often).
For I will polish on. However, it is quite possible to achieve a very acceptable result (I am wary of the term "pro") for members educated ear. And I guess it's a fantastic learning tool. Mumuse do with the cables behind is a delight ...
I do not see why a user of Reason happen this tool, and I see why a musicos (sic) could be seduced by the intuitive package that represents the duo props. But to make the sound engineer and mix or mastering a fortiori, it was said a hundred times, and it is obvious, it is not the appropriate yes!. But 20 years ago that would not have killed for a tool like this?
